Course Overview

The Master of Business Administration (MBA) degree is the most internationally-recognised business qualification in the world today. It is a professional degree in business management based on a practical programme with theoretical, applied and research underpinning. It covers a range of business disciplines which form the basis of executive decision-making.

Graduates will have a broad knowledge of the range of business subjects in the basic core, and will have more in-depth knowledge and skills in subjects relevant to the specialisation of their choice. The knowledge and skills thus gained should equip a graduate well to advance their careers in successively more senior management roles.

The MBA offers specialisations in:

  • International Business
  • Finance
  • Marketing
  • Operations and Logistics

The MBA also has three alternative pathways:

  • 27 modules and a two-month Field Study
  • 25 modules and a three-month Internship
  • 20 modules and a six-month Dissertation

The challenging five-stage programme makes significant time demands in order to reach the required standard.

In addition to assessed modules, the MBA integrates the curriculum through Integrated Management Learning seminars at two critical stages of the programme (after Stages 1 and 2).

The programme provides experiential learning with emphasis on sound corporate values, professional skills development and overall growth. Teaching staff are selected for their special blend of academic qualifications, research activities, current business and consulting experience, international involvement and teaching skills; providing exposure to international leading-edge best practices.

The MBA is approved and accredited by the New Zealand Qualifications Authority and is continuously reviewed and monitored by international practitioners and academics at the forefront of professional business development.

Programme participants will increase and broaden their skills base and enhance their ability to think laterally, research, problem-solve, be proactive, apply new ideas, think strategically and increase managerial competence. Skills are acquired today that can be applied tomorrow.

Using the interactive lecture/seminar format for management education, skills are rapidly enhanced, building on individual experiences and blending these with new knowledge, perspectives and concepts. Small classes facilitate a highly interactive learning environment.
